South American Plate Paleogeography


Paleogeography is the study of what the geography was in times past. The reconstruction of prehistoric continents and oceans depends partly on paleogeographic evidence. Thus paleogeography provides critical evidence for the development of continental drift and currentplate tectonic theories. For example, knowledge of the shape and latitudinal location of supercontinents such as Pangaea and ancient oceans such as Panthalassa result from paleogeographic studies.
